In a very scenic location that stands out among its neighbours, 126 was a good choice for us. We wanted an early (just after 5 PM) light supper and ended up ordering appetizers. We had a great location outside and found the soups and salads...More

I went to this restaurant with a few colleagues from work. What we got was slow service and overly priced food. I expected that, with only four other tables full, the service would be relatively quick. It took over 35 minutes for us to get...More

I typically walk in and say "I'm going to eat here once. What must I eat on the menu?" The waiter was so scared to make a strong recommendation one way or the other. Good thing I had eaten there before, so I chose the...More

I usually get the steak sandwich with a side of salad. Other people I dine with have had other menu items and have not been disappointed. I've been for dinner a couple times but the menu is simply not as appetizing as the lunch menu.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to each last Friday night and having previously had a good experience at 126 we decided to go there. On the server’s suggestion, I had the Hangar Steak. That was unfortunately a mis-steak. The meat and...More

I went with a foodie friend to Iowa City for a day of window shopping. We spent the morning in the ped mall downtown and stopped to eat at 126 since it was rated pretty well and it was right there. We usually split our...More

I have been there for lunch and dinner, and I would say, go there for lunch. The sandwich and salad are tasty. Different layers of flavors mix well. It's not a fast sandwich shop, so take your time enjoying the food. The price for dinner...More

There are a number of good-to-great restaurants in Iowa City, but there's no doubt that One Twenty Six (and it's upstairs venue Hearth) are our favorites. The location is terrific, the aesthetics are gorgeous, the full-length windows open to let in the fresh evening air...More
